The Academic Support and Access Center (ASAC) supports the academic development and educational goals of all American University students and is committed to providing access for individuals with disabilities within the university's diverse community.
Topics of interest to all students include time management and procrastination, effective writing, textbook reading, note taking, critical thinking, memory skills, and test taking. Graduate students can receive assistance in their coursework or preparing for comprehensive exams. International students may want help with writing or with the transition to the American classroom. Student-athletes work with dedicated counselors who provide individual academic support as well as life skills programming, and first-year students can take advantage of the services offered to better adapt to the college environment.
